This car is a 1970 Jaguar E-Type or XKE Roadster...door plate shows manufactured date of 1-'70. I believe that this is considered a Series 2. A friend of mine found this car in an old garage, contacted the then owner and purchased the vehicle and then sold it to me. I will give a Bill of Sale. I have cranked this car from it's own gas tank and the motor runs good. I have eased it across my yard but have not put it on the road as the brakes need to be bled. To the best of my knowledge, this is a running E-Type, mechanically sound. It is, however, a total cosmetic restoration. It will need rocker panels, as my friend cut out a slot to install a steel plate to reinforce the old floor pans. Pics will show additional body work required. The motor tube support frame is in very good condition...very solid...

I have the following additional comments to offer: I have the seats and, while the frames will need to be refurbished, the foam and hides will have to be replaced. I have the spare tire on it's original wire rim. I have the convertible top frame which will also need refurbishing. No soft top. I have the knock off tool and lead hammer, new rubber moulding between bumper and car and new rubber moulding around trunk lid..these were ordered recently from Moss. Tail lights have been removed but I have the lights. The steering wheel will likely need to be replaced..see pics...as the wood rim is gone. Otherwise, I believe that the pics show all else. I had planned to begin restoration, but have other priorities. 

Mileage is: 85,054....Car No. is: 1R12513....Engine No. is: 7R10503..cash or Certified Bank Check acceptable. Bank Check subject to seller's bank's clearance policy. 

For someone who wishes to do the cosmetics for a sound mechanical E-Type, this is your project. I welcome all questions. Thank you for bidding!

2015 Jaguar F-Type V6 S Coupe

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 11:57:00 EST

My first, ill-fated job in the auto world was at an exotic car dealer in metro Detroit. The job itself sucked, but the cars, they were exceptional. Amidst a sea of Tiptronic Porsche Boxsters, first-gen Mercedes-Benz SLKs and abused second-generation Range Rovers, there were some real gems.
In particular, I have fond memories of a trio of undrivable Jaguar E-Types. Two Series II coupes as well as a Series III convertible (that featured a mostly broken roof) spent the entirety of my brief tenure at the dealership in the back of the musty service garage. I'd make side trips through there just to see the trio of E-Types, which rarely failed to put a big, ridiculous grin on my face.
Since that time in the summer of 2005, there hasn't been a single Jag that's been capable of eliciting the same goofy smile. Not the XFR-S, with its un-aristocratic wing, nor the XKR-S. At the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, though, Jaguar introduced this F-Type Coupe. Sure, the droptop model had been around for a bit, but I thought it was the new coupe that most captured the E-Type's classic aesthetic, with a swooping roofline, those gorgeous rear haunches and a long, powerful hood. I had to drive one.

Has the Jaguar XKR-S Sportbrake leaked out early?

Sun, 23 Feb 2014 15:02:00 EST

Want to haul ass down the Autobahn with the whole family and all their gear in tow? Forget that Porsche Cayenne or Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 - what you'll want is a power wagon: something like an Audi RS6 Avant or Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate. Unfortunately there are precious few of these performance station wagons on the market anywhere, especially with American offerings like the Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon on its way out and the Dodge Magnum SRT8 long gone. But there's a new challenger emerging.
That'd be the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake, a hi-po estate from Coventry that's been a long time in the making. And now it's apparently almost here. (Only by "here," we mean "there," as it's not likely ever to come to the United States.)
Apparently set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show is a Frankenstein-style cross between a Jaguar XF Sportbrake and XFR-S performance sedan, taking the best elements from both. From the former, that means the extended roofline that gives it the cargo capacity of a small crossover. From the former, that means a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 producing 542 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque, driving the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

542-HP Jaguar XJR to debut at New York Auto Show

Wed, 20 Mar 2013 11:15:00 EST

Jaguar has just announced that a higher-than-ever performance version of its XJ flagship will be coming to this year's New York Auto Show next week. Joining the company's R lineup is this XJR, which will boast a stonking 542 horsepower from its supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine.
Though details about the new XJ are pretty slim - you can read Jag's teaser of a press release - we are told that the car will ride on a "bespoke chassis" and that some aerodynamics work has been done, as well. The one sultry image we have of the car shows a set of trim-specific wheels, lower sills and unique badging on the front grille.
The new XJR would seem to slot above the current top-dog XJ, the XJ Supersport. With a bump up of 32 hp versus the Supersport, performance should get a meaningful shot in the arm, as well. As for pricing, we'll have to wait for the NYC show to be sure. But other Jaguar models show an increase of between 15- and 20-percent between the R model and the next one down; that would indicate a price tag in the $130k range for a standard wheelbase XJR is in order.
